i-mate JAQ... messaging PPC

This is something a bit more interesting also from i-mate.
It's called the i-mate JAQ, this one has Windows Mobile 5 PocketPC Phone Edition.
It looks a bit ugly but it is the form factor I was hoping for as it has landscape display and a full QWERTY keyboard with no moving parts. I'd get this in a heartbeat if it had 3G or 3.5G and a more robust processor.
Some specs:
TI OMAP 850 200mhz [yikes! it's the same as the Wizard's might be a bit underpowered for a PPC PE]
64Mb RAM/128Mb ROM
Quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE [world phone but no 3G or 3.5G]
Bluetooth 1.2 [not sure about A2DP]
Landscape Touchscreen qVGA display
QWERTY keyboard
miniUSB [11 pins unsure if this is the same with my current device]
miniSD Expansion
no WiFi [not a big deal if it had 3 or 3.5G but it doesn't!]
no Camera [not a big deal]

All in all this could have been a great PPC PE if it had a faster processor and highspeed data. Pity that it falls short in these departments. Also i-mate should really re-think their naming and branding system it doesn't sound and look too professional.

Spider-man needs a partner or side-kick. I prefer crime fighting partner vs side-kick tho.

Marvel is rumored to be hiring Josh Brolin for Thanos as the mega-villain for their cinematic universe. This means Guardians of the Galaxy & Avengers. Both are super teams.

Fox has teased a mega-villain for the X-Men super-team to go up against in their latest movie. FYI, X-Men: Days of Future Past has a post credit scene. I think Fantastic Four is also being rebooted. Yes that is a super-team as well.

DC still playing catch-up but they are going in with the heavy hitters Bats & Boy Scout with a rumored Amazon in the mix. We all know the goal is the Justice League super-team

Meanwhile, I think Sony is in trouble. Right now they have the "Web Head" going up against multiple villains and the formula is kinda stale. Franchise fatigue not withstanding, our favorite web slinging, trash talking super-hero has the "Sinister Six" super villain group to fight but who can h…
